NOTE: I am now talking from the present…
Even though my brother and I are not thrilled about not going to the hospital, we are going to make the best of our opportunity by making a delicious dinner. We plan on making a risotto with bacon!
Here is the recipe my brother and I are going to use!
1 cup Lundberg® Arborio Rice
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 large onion, chopped
¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
4-5 cups hot stock (or water)
½ cup white California wine (optional)
We are adding bacon.
Heat olive oil in a heavy non-stick 2-quart pot. Saute onion in oil until translucent. Add rice and stir rice until grains are coated with oil Add wine and stir constantly on medium heat until wine is absorbed. Add 1 cup hot stock or water, stirring until liquid is absorbed. Continue cooking for about 20 minutes, adding the remaining liquid 1 cup at a time. This rice creates its own creamy sauce; add additional liquid if creamier texture is desired. Remove from heat, stir in cheeses and serve immediately. For variety add fresh herbs and chopped vegetables during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
This is both, my brother and I’s first time making a risotto (we have eaten it many times), wish us luck!
